By Charlotte Robinson, June 07, 2022

Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is hosting its annual statewide Against the Tide athletic fundraising events as both virtual & in-person events this summer. MBCC will hold two in-person events kicking off on Saturday June 18th at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park in Hopkinton, MA for the 30th year & then on Saturday August 13th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA for the 23rd year. These events will feature 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, 3-mile walk & a 1-mile USMS sanctioned swim. Cheryl Osimo, MBCC's Executive Director stated, "We are grateful to the many people who continue to support MBCC & we’re so encouraged by how well our virtual events were received by participants both locally & nationally in 2020 & 2021. In 2022, we hope that providing multiple virtual & in-person event options will give even more people a chance to be a part of the Against the Tide events to swim, walk & run in support of breast cancer prevention." Additionally MBCC will host two virtual events each with an 8-day participation window. First the Against the Tide June Virtual Event will run June 11th to 18th & Against the Tide August Virtual Event will run August 6th to 13th. Registration for both the virtual & in-person options is $40 for an individual participant & $100 for a family registration up to 5 family members. MBCC is the leading breast cancer organization dedicated to preventing the environmental causes of breast cancer through community education, research advocacy & changes to public policy.
